Falcon Ridge Folk Festival
There are presently no open calls for submissions.
The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival
is a 3-day community of folk music and dance now entering its 35th year in 2023 at a new time and place following 3 years of VIRTUAL and limited hybrid in-person festivals during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year's fest will be a full 3 days of music, community and camping at the Goshen Fairgrounds in Goshen CT on July 28, 29 & 30.
The festival normally has 4 stages: Main, Dance, Family & Workshop. DANCE will return with its usual variety and vigor in 2023 along with Main, Workshop & Family stages. The Workshop Stage features different combinations of performers booked on one or more of the other stages sharing sets on a variety of topics. Some performers are booked specifically for one stage but most appear on more than one.
We are not accepting FEATURE ARTIST submissions for the 2023 festival but concentrating exclusively on re-booking all the artists planned for the past 3 fests who we could not invite.
Our Friday afternoon GRASSY HILL EMERGING ARTIST SHOWCASE is accepting submissions thru June 1.
We plan to accept 15 emerging artists by a panel of judges for a spot in our Friday afternoon SHOWCASE held on the Main Stage. This is a 2 song or 10 minute spot. The showcase is open to all performers who have not showcased in the last 2 years and who will NOT be appearing in any other capacity including sideperson or special guest in the current year. The showcase is an opportunity to be seen and heard in a large amphitheater setting with hundreds of folk fans, presenters, agents, record labels and media in attendance. A committee of 3 music professionals review submissions and makes selections. There is a $20 Showcase application fee.
